Spanish to English translations [Non-PRO] Slang
Spanish term or phrase:mandar a la chingada
Por que te fuiste hoy sin saludar? Arturo no deja de decirme que ya te mande a la chingada....eso debo
hacer? Por que me haces eso?
I know that this is a mexican colloquial (and probably vulgar) expression, but i'm not sure of the exact English translation. I have the meaning, but not the English words. Thanks!
Explanation: "Arturo keeps on saying that I should tell you to fuck off"
ah, el mexicanismo mas mexicano que existe! Like most other insults, el chingar/ la chingada, derives its offensiveness by and through its environment. I assume that the setting where the statement you gave was a heated one. So, "eso debo
hacer? Por que me haces eso?" is said with anger.
If the setting is less confrontational, then Marian Greenfield's "tell you to go to hell" would be more appropriate.
